IntroductionFinale Sports Bar and Grill will strive to be the premier sports theme restaurant inthe Sunny County region. This will be the first sports bar in this region. At this sports barwe want our customers to have more fun during their leisure and dining time. The sportsbar will provide more televisions with more sporting events than anywhere else in theregion. The sports bar will provide state-of-the-art table-top audio control at each table sothe customer can listen to the selected program of his or her choice without interferencefrom background noise. The sports bar will combine menu selection, atmosphere,lighting, and service to create a sense of excitement in order to reach our goal of over-allvalue in a dining and entertainment experience.Finale Sports Bar and Grill will be held privately by a LLC company which willbe owned by Jack Johnson to financially back the new business venture. I will still be theprincipal owner of the bar. In order to start the company I will have to get a loan of anundisclosed amount (not known at this time). This loan will provide start up capital,financing for a building and supplies, pay for permits and licensing, employee training,and anything else that should arise. The expected open date for this bar and grill will beDecember 10th, 2006. This will give us the opportunity to serve customers for NewYear’s and the Super Bowl.Industry AnalysisThis restaurant industry is very large and sometimes hard to get exact numbers.There are many categories of restaurants so I outlined Services sector and the restaurantindustry according to Yahoo finance. “The nation's 900,000 restaurants should hit 476billion in sales in 2005, according to the National Restaurant Association's 2005Restaurant Industry Forecast”. Restaurants employ12.2 million, this is 9% of theworkforce in the United States, and the industry is the largest employer besidesgovernment. These numbers include single owner restaurants to the largest franchises inthe world.The growth trends for the restaurant industry are forecast to advance 4.9% in2005. Analyst predict that the U.S. Restaurant Industry which created, on average, about270,000 new jobs per year during the last 10 years is on track to add 1.8 million new jobsduring the next 10 years. On a typical day, the industry will post average sales of 1.3billion.The industry trends to watch: Greater use of technology and worker training as a means to boost productivityand efficiency. Continued increased focus on healthy lifestyles and restaurants providingcustomers with choices and customization. Increased upgrades and improvements in decor and becoming environmentallyfriendly.JohnsonPage 410 Dec 2006

The sports bar & grill will have to serve several market sectors. We will have afamily atmosphere as well as cater to the sports enthusiast. The restaurant will have toserve multiple uses; for example workday lunch, dinner with the family, watching the biggame, late-night cravings, and take-out. There will be eating and drink and sports beingwatched but I plan to have different sections for different dining experiences. There is awall that divides the bar area from the family (I say family area but this is just a littlequieter) area. No matter where you sit there will still be TV’s so you can watch sportingevents.The regulatory issues I’ll have to look more closely into are the liqueur licenses,wages for employees, building permits, and any local ordinances that may affect mybusiness.OrganizationFinale Sports Bar and Grill will be held privately by a LLC company owned byJack Johnson. The restaurant will be located in the town of Car. Car is great for tourismso a local restaurant should prove to be a good business venture.The restaurant will need to serve several market sectors. It will have a familyatmosphere as well as to cater to the sports enthusiast. The restaurant will have a lunchmenu, dinner menu, and the bar menu. The restaurant will also have weekly happy hourdrink specials along with lunch and dinner specials.To help save on insurance cost and claims top management will stress safety,stress safety, and stress more safety. Safety starts with the hiring process. The companywill be thorough in efforts to screen employees and will consider pre-employment drugtests. This should reduce on the job accidents that lead to insurance claims.The insurances for the restaurant will need to acquire will be workman’scompensation, pplications of our concept. They will receive extensive informationfrom the managers and be kept informed of the latest information on healthy eating.For process and benchmarking a big emphasis is being placed on extensiveresearch into the quality and integrity of our products. They will constantly be tested forour own high standards of freshness and purity. Food costs and inventory control will behandled by our computer system and checked daily by management.OperationsThe key food suppliers for the business will be Sysco Foods or Gordon FoodService. These two suppliers supply the same goods so the restaurant manager willchoose which vendor to do business with. The restaurant will select with the supplier thatprovides us a store credit, has exceptional delivery times, and has the best overall prices.We will get the office supplies from Office Max or Staples. The rest of the restaurantsupplies (pots, pans, silverware, cooking utensils) will come from Atlas RestaurantSupply.The inventory management and order taking and processing will all be done ontouch screen monitors placed throughout the restaurant and bar area. We will have to buythe touch monitors and maybe even a couple hand held order entry units. The softwarethe business will use is from Digital Dining, which is the premiere restaurant software.This software can be altered to the businesses needs. The software will include a point ofsale menu, inventory control analysis, credit card sales, bar and quick serve menu, officemanagement, and much more. With this software there are so many applications it coulddo I could write the paper on this alone.JohnsonPage 710 Dec 2006

We will provide ongoing training programs to assist with customer service andquality control. The training will include preparation of menu items, quality and foodportion control, beverage and inventory management, using the software, cleanliness,organization and sanitation standards, marketing and public relations.The facility size the business is looking for is building with a seating capacity ofaround 100 to 150 people or 25,000 sq. feet. This may sound big but if there is a bigsports event we want to pack them in, or people just don’t want to sit next to other peoplethis would give them space to spread out. The business will need to get all the kitchenhardware needed to run a restaurant of this size; this includes stoves, refrigerators,freezers, microwaves, deep fryers, and many other items. We will also have to buy thebig screens televisions, audio equipment, arcade games, and the table top monitors withthere own audio control.When benchmarking we will compare our business to a larger business in a largergeographic area, mainly Buffalo Wild Wing’s or Applebee’s. The business will measureand compare the number of guest per day, number of meals and drinks served, cost ofsupplies, and the waste percentage. With all these we should be able to be the premierebar and grill in Sunny County.Competitive AnalysisFinale Sports Bar and Grill is a casual dining restaurant. The geographic area thatFinale Bar and Grill will cover is mostly Car and surrounding smaller towns. Accordingto Dun & Bradstreet analysis of businesses located in Sunny County they are classifiedunder SIC code 58, eating and drinking places. With this bar and grill, I hope to move inon the customers traveling to bigger cities for their eating and entertainment needs and inreturn increasing my market share.There are many small restaurants in the area but none with the sports bar and grilltheme (shown in the appendix). The sales for the restaurants in this area range fromunder 200,000 up to 2.4 million. The closest sports bar is in Ridges, which is a fortyminute drive away. The current restaurants located in Car offer a casual diningexperience but with no sports watching entertainment.The top competitor is BW3’s which is in Ridges. BW3’s is a sports bar thatoffers an extensive menu with chicken products, full bar service, and sporting events onmany TV’s. BW3’s has the same target market that I’m trying to furnish to. They have acasual family dining experience and sports bar theme one in one restaurant. I willdifferentiate myself from BW3’s by offering a full menu selection, close to homeatmosphere, and a dining experience free from stress.BW3’s SWOT analysis will help me to better understand my business, determinemy target market, and develop a marketing plan.JohnsonPage 810 Dec 2006

Strengths Has name recognition Offers a chicken filled menu and full bar selection. Target market is anyone that would like to watch sports in a bar orrestaurant atmosphere. Uses TV and radio commercials to communicate to their markets. Offer high quality audio and video equipment for their customer viewingand listening pleasures. Location StaffWeaknesses Location is a long driving distance from Car Offer mainly chicken products, some shrimp, and maybe a couple burgers.Opportunities (for Finale Sports Bar) Finale Sports Bar could offer a full restaurant menu. Could take market share away from nightclubs. Entertainment for children Family friendly atmosphere Close locationThreats (for Finale Sports Bar) Another sports bar could move into this area. Fast food chains, people could get their food and watch sports at home. Increase food prices Inflation affecting operations for food, labor, and restaurant operatingcosts. Keeping trained efficient staff. Economy- people getting laid off and spending less money eating out.Other competitors of Finale Sports Bar and Grill are fast food chains such asMcDonalds, Subway, Burger King, Taco Bell, KFC and Wendy’s. While these are notdirect competitors of Finale Sports Bar and Grill because of the different market nichethat they operate in, these companies still compete for the same market share ofindividuals dinning out. And all the fast food companies are within the same geographicarea.MarketingFinale Sports Bar & Grill target market is based on serving the sports enthusiast,the business entertainer/owner, tourism, and the local night crowd, as well as familiesJohnsonPage 910 Dec 2006
